Jacob Hoggard is a newlywed.
The Hedley frontman allegedly tied the knot with Rebekah Asselstine in Vancouver on New Year’s Eve, according to online reports and photos.
Asselstine is a 28-year-old actress from New Westminster, BC. Her IMDb page lists her recent films and shows as The Unseen (2016), Supergirl (2015) and The Perfect Pickup (2018).
The wedding took place just months after Hoggard was arrested and charged with sexual assault.
Toronto Police said that Hoggard’s arrest stems from incidents dating back to 2016, in which Hoggard met three separate women on three separate dates and “committed a sexual assault on each of them.”
In July, 2018, police announced that as a result of a joint investigation with Peel Regional Police, the 34-year-old Vancouver resident would be facing one count of sexual interference, and two counts of assault causing bodily harm.
Several sexual assault allegations were made online against the band last year, and Hedley announced an indefinite hiatus as a result.
